Well, my "problem" is just a normal use-case: a regular user is not  
expected to go edit a configuration file when there is a GUI to do the  
So, when a user has a pretty long and complex password, it is a big  
pain to introduce it letter-by-letter in the illume UI via keyboard  
when a simple "ctrl-V" or "shift-ins" would do the trick (copied from  
a file opened in the qtopia text editor or something like it).  
Inputting a 63 character password with all kinds of random-generated  
chars (including " / @ ^ ~ etc.) is a trial-and-error task (because  
there is no visual feedback) and also very time-consuming (because of  
all the keyboard shifting) that could simply be avoided.
It is not a big problem, but it is annoying as hell to a newcomer.
After all, openmoko is about a grand new friendly user experience,  
right? free your phone?... ;)
